"Preemptive action must be taken."

Springfield, Illinois: As Governor Rod Blagojevich's legal woes mount and mount, the purity of the nation's food supply remains a source of concern. Though there is no proven link between food consumption and the so-called "necromortosis virus" which has caused isolated zombie outbreaks, recent concerns over genetically modified foods have inflamed since the virus was discovered in 2006 and most recently in the United States when a suspected zombie outbreak occurred recently in New Jersey.

The governor is a staunch supporter of controversial legislation calling for strict government oversight of soybean and corn production. "This legislation would make our food supply safe against this hideous and tragic virus," the governor insisted as early as Januray 2008. "Preemptive action must be taken." Blagojevich was speaking specifically of the Noland/Rifeld Act which would provide twenty five million dollars to Illinois' corn-growing and testing industries to develop equipment and testing procedures designed specifically to thwart the necromortosis virus.

However, local legislators, corn growers and food researchers have been skeptical of the legislation since its inception. "Further research must be done to determine the structure of the virus on a DNA level before we can develop anything practical, effective, and safe to destroy it. The two-year time table in the legislation is clearly unrealistic," said University of Illinois Professor of Agriculture Lindsay Graham.

Senator John Rifeld, R-Carbondale, however said the legislation was important as a stimulus for advance research. "I believe advance research and advance knowledge can be very effective tools. This legislation provides those tools that can help in a pending crisis," the senator said in a recent press conference. Asked to clarify he said, "the finer points of the bill provide money and other ways to research the exact nature and structure of this virus."

"This is typical of legislation supported by the Governor. If Archer Daniels Midland takes the bait then they have to submit to further and invasive government oversight into all other areas of production outside of the necrovirus. Government interference would, in fact, impede not just research into the virus but would slow down production in other areas as well," said Senator Mike Lugan (R-Danville). "That's typical of Blagojevich's pet legislations. Pretty on the outside. A poison pill on the inside. This poison pill would gut one of the state's leading industrial giants."

However, with the recent allegations of attempting to sell the United States Senate Seat left vacant by President-elect Barack Obama among others, it would seem that whatever impetus the Noland/Rifeld act had could wane in light of Blagojevich's recent troubles. "I think Noland/Rifeld is probably taking a back burner right now in everyone's minds, at least here in Illinois," said States Attorney General Lisa Madigan who recently called for the state senate to remove Blagojevich from power. "But who knows. Given the upcoming FBI indictments, a stab at anti-zombie legislation might seem like a welcome vacation for him."
